Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Skating with extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) partnered with Jake Walman at Wednesday's scrimmage, Lou Korac of reports.

Gunnarsson is entering the final year of his contract, and it appears he won't be a nightly player for the Blues this year. Torey Krug, Marco Scandella, Justin Faulk, Vince Dunn and Colton Parayko are fixtures on the blue line, so Gunnarsson likely will rotate in with Bortuzzo in the shortened 56-game campaign.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups and isn't expected to play in Friday's Game 6 versus the Canucks, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Friday will be the second game Gunnarsson has missed with his undisclosed injury. Robert Bortuzzo is expected to remain in the lineup while Gunnarsson is out. If the Blues win, Gunnarsson's next chance to return will arrive Sunday for Game 7.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Out of action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) will not play in Wednesday's Game 5 versus the Canucks, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

It's unclear if Gunnarsson is injured or being given rest, but his absence from warmups ahead of Game 5 would suggest the former. Robert Bortuzzo enters the lineup on the third pairing, while Justin Faulk will take Gunnarsson's usual spot alongside Alex Pietrangelo.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Records helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson produced an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks in Game 3.

Gunnarsson picked up the secondary helper on Brayden Schenn's game-winning goal in overtime. The assist was Gunnarsson's first point in five outings. He's added a plus-2 rating, four blocked shots and four hits in the playoffs.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Two blocks in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) had two blocked shots and a shot on goal in Sunday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Stars in the round robin.

Gunnarsson's absence was never clearly defined as an injury or just for rest purposes. The defensively-oriented blueliner had four PIM, three blocked shots and two hits during the round robin. While he typically sees top-pairing usage for the Blues, Gunnarsson doesn't score enough to make an impact in most fantasy formats.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Projected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's round-robin finale against the Stars, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Gunnarsson got the night off Thursday against Vegas, but he'll draw back into the lineup for St. Louis' final round-robin match. The 33-year-old blueliner is expected to skate with Alex Pietrangelo on the Blues' top pairing Sunday.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Golden Knights, Lou Korac of reports.

The Blues have yet to release any details regarding the reason for Gunnarsson's absence, but it's possible he's simply getting a night off to allow Robert Bortuzzo to see some action during the round-robin round. Either way, Gunnarsson's absence shouldn't raise any alarms in the fantasy world, as he's only totaled 14 points in 61 regular-season games over the past two campaigns.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Helpers in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson registered an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

Gunnarsson set up Ivan Barbashev's opening tally at 9:21 of the second period. The Swedish blueliner has helpers in consecutive games for the first time this season, and seven points in 27 contests overall. That matches his production from last year -- he hasn't reached double-digits since 2014-15, his first year with the Blues when he had 12 points in 61 outings. Gunnarsson has added 36 blocks, 26 hits and a plus-5 rating in 2019-20.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Notches sixth point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson posted an assist, two shots on net and a hit in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Predators.

Gunnarsson has been able to stick in the lineup since returning from an arm injury, and he's averaging 17:07 of ice time per game in February. He won't carry much fantasy value, as he's registered just six points, 17 shots on net and 33 blocked shots through 26 games this year.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Scores second goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson scored a goal on his lone shot and registered a pair of hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Gunnarsson scored on a harmless-looking point shot in the second period, tying the game at 2-2. It was just the second goal of the year for the 33-year-old, who has five points in his 22 games. Gunnarsson is a depth player for the Blues who does not offer any fantasy upside.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Slots back in Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson logged 16:14 and dished out a hit in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Gunnarsson was a healthy scratch in two of five games leading up to this contest, but he worked on the top pairing in this contest with penalty-kill duties, too. The 33-year-old has four points over 21 games, and his fantasy value is negligible at this point.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (arm) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

In a corresponding move, the team placed Colton Parayko (upper body) on IR. Gunnarsson was healthy for Monday's win over the Ducks, but coach Craig Berube kept him out of the lineup since Niko Mikkola was playing well. Therefore, Gunnarsson's activation doesn't guarantee that he'll play Wednesday versus the Flyers.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Healthy, but not playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Craig Berube said Gunnarsson (arm) is healthy but won't play in Monday's game versus the Ducks, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Gunnarsson resides on injured reserve still, as the Blues want to keep Niko Mikkola in the lineup. It's unclear how long the team will wait before reinserting Gunnarsson into the lineup, but fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned, as the 33-year-old hasn't recorded double-digit points since the 2014-15 campaign.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (arm) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Gunnarsson, who's been sidelined since Dec. 12 with an arm injury, is considered healthy enough to play, but he'll need some time to get back into game shape before rejoining the lineup. He'll need to be activated off injured reserve before returning to action, so another update on his status should surface once that occurs.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (arm) will remain sidelined against San Jose on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

According to coach Craig Berube, Gunnarsson might be healthy enough to play but needs some more practice time before getting back into the lineup. With the defenseman sidelined along with Colton Parayko (upper body), youngster Niko Mikkola will make his NHL debut in Tuesday's tilt. The Blues will have another practice session Wednesday, which opens the door for Gunnarsson to return to action versus Buffalo on Thursday.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Nearing return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Craig Berube said that Gunnarsson (arm) may be ready for Tuesday's game versus the Sharks, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Gunnarsson hasn't played since Dec. 12, and even when he's healthy, there's no guarantee he's inserted into the lineup. However, if Colton Parayko (upper body) can't go, Gunnarsson's services will be necessary. The 33-year-old blueliner's return to the lineup will be preceded by activation from IR.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson has been placed on injured reserve due to an upper-body injury.

Gunnarsson will be forced to miss the next three games at a minimum because of the issue, though it's possible his stay on the sidelines could last longer than that. The veteran defenseman has notched just four points through 17 games and has seen a career-low 14:56 of ice time per contest, so his fantasy upside remains limited even when healthy.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Dealing with undisclosed issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (undisclosed) won't be available for Saturday's clash with Chicago, Lou Korac of reports.

It sounds like Gunnarsson may be in danger of missing extended time, but he's frequently sat as a healthy scratch and has only managed four points in the 17 games he's appeared in this season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his availability.

December 2, 2019 02:36 PM
Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (illness) participated in Monday's morning skate, Lou Korac of reports.

Gunnarsson appears healthy after falling ill and missing the last two games, but he's expected to be a scratch for Monday's game against the Blackhawks with Robert Bortuzzo returning from suspension.

Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Still not feeling right
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gunnarsson (illness) won't play Saturday against the Penguins, Lou Korac of reports.

Gunnarsson will miss a second consecutive game after being unable to dress for Friday's contest in Dallas. Derrick Pouliot will skate in his place.
